This week:

  • Update “Meetings” in Documentation Wiki (In Progress)
  • Update the current Emma B. Andrews Omeka template (In Progress)
    • Sandbox: Fix landing page title display error, There was a change in the new version of the SimplePages plugin. They wrapped a conditional statement around the page title “h1” tags. The test was: if the current page was not the home page, display page title. Chris removed the condition, everything appears to be working normally. Chris found it was valuable to still have the pre upgrade version of the site still on the server for comparison. Chris will upgrade the Omeka documentation to something like, “we will keep that file on the server until the next upgrade.” New larger logo images, Started adjusting the style sheet, Removed breadcrumbs
  • UW Digital Projects Showcase: Space may be challenging, http://www.lib.washington.edu/ougl/images/alc3
